They've promised us snow. NOAA has been predicting a kick-ass winter storm for the Charlotte area. I'm patiently waiting. I like the snow, as I only have to put up with it on rare occasions, and most of those by choice (trips to the high country). But I do want to see a decent snowfall today and tonight. Currently, it is, as they like to say, pissing rain. I mean really, really raining. It's coming down in sheets. If it was snow instead of rain, we'd have a couple of feet.
My plan is (if it does actually snow) to drive to a nearby state park and hike around in the fluffy stuff. We'll see what happens. They're calling for upwards of more than half a foot of snow, which would give us the heaviest snowfall for this area since 2004. We'll see.
